LEFA, a transportation solutions start-up founded in 2018, recently conducted a sustainable business empowerment training workshop in Windhoek.
LEFA Transportation Services (Pty) Ltd, a shuttle requesting application that connects drivers and passengers, in association with the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS)’s Namibia-Angola Office, hosted the two-day training initiative targeted at 30 independent small business owners and shuttle drivers.
The workshop focused on empowering and uplifting LEFA’s small business partners by providing them with innovative and sustainable tools, knowledge and skills to successfully expand their operations across Namibia. In collaboration with LEFA’s support and operational guidance, these small business owners are now expected to be able to develop and expand their operations.
In line with and adhering to Covid-19 regulations, the 30 beneficiaries at the workshop were separated into four groups over a period of eight days from 11 to 18 July 2021.
The drivers engaged with professionals with extensive and expansive knowledge offered by two separate trainers, Franklin Covey Namibia (FCN) and Namibia Men for Gender Justice (NMfGJ).
The two facilitators aimed to improve the shuttle drivers’ approach to managing and supporting their customers more efficiently.
